The work week is over and the weekend is finally here! Time to kick back, relax and take care of the most important person in your life…you! Some of you may say, “No, my husband, man, children or family are the most important people in my life.” In all actuality, you wouldn’t be any good to them if you didn’t love and take care of yourself first. You have to be happy and relaxed in order to be the best wife, girlfriend, mother, daughter or sister that you can be. With that said, you need to treat yourself.

Don’t sit around and wait for someone else to make you feel good. Treat yourself to a mini shopping spree, a spa day or brunch at your favorite restaurant. Go out and enjoy the beautiful day. Go to the park and read a book or cheat on your diet by indulging in your favorite junk food.

After working hard all week and catering to other peoples issues, it’s more than important that you take care of you. Do something that makes you smile. Leave all the stress, worry and paperwork you have to deal with once Monday hits at your place of work. For some people just spending a day in silence with absolutely no distractions is bliss.

I know that we all make our list of errands to run on the weekend, but don’t forget to include on that list to do something that makes you happy. You work hard so you can play harder. We are only blessed with one life so take every opportunity you can to enjoy. You deserve it girl!

    I couldn’t agree more! It’s really important that we take time for ourselves. So much of our time often goes to others, and we forget to do nice things for ourselves from time-to-time. So I’m all for taking time to show love to yourself, and to remind yourself that you’re a great person…to take a moment to pat yourself on the back!
